Armistice 100 Centenary 1918 - 2018


Today a wreath was layed to the 10 gallent and brave men who were killed during the conlict in the First World War.

We recently restored the war memorial in the memory of John Bostock MBE, who was managing director for over 40 years, and it seemed entirely appropriate to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War by remembering those who worked at Springfield Mill and lost their lives in that war.

We pay respect to the following heroic men

Charles Dockery age 30

Abraham Ellis - 24

Harold Enderby -  

Joseph Ormerod Hillings - 21

Sam Layfield - 25

Cyril Marvell - 

James Wm Raynor Moorhouse - 23

Harold Suddards - 22

Harry Wharton - 16

Wm Edward York - 24

RIP "We shall never forget"

We are delighted to announce that High Quality Contracts Ltd  have moved to a bigger ground floor unit on our Springfield Mill site.

HQC Interiors are nationwide design specialists.

Offering bespoke solutions for national and regional house builders as well as private developers and individual clients.
They supply stylish interior furnishings and flooring for show houses.
HQC Ltd have been a tenant on the Springfield site since 2007, based on the 2nd floor of the multi storey block
However due to increased workloads and gaining a number of new contracts they asked if a larger unit with ground floor access was avaiable.
It just so happened that the unit which used to be The Skep Mill Shop became vacant and was shown to HQC Ltd who thought the unit was perfect for them.
Works started back in May to up grade and transform it to the requirements of HQC lTD.
The unit was fitted out with LED lighting, Gas central heating, New Kitchen, Vinyl flooring and fully painted.
We wish High Quality Contract Ltd all the best of luck, and thank them for thier continued business.
